The super stars took to the stage for a performance of “Let Me Entertain You.” Watch a clip below.
In a recent interview with OnTheRedCarpet.com, R&B singing sensation John Legend shared how he quickly realized the uniqueness of the show.
“I’ve guested on a bunch of TV shows and performed on a bunch of talk shows, but it’s different when you’re in there entertaining folks every week. It’s definitely a different feel,” he said. “I’m used to being on stage, I’m used to touring the country, touring the world, but this definitely has a different feel.”
How different is this music show comparable to the others out there, you ask?
Besides the obvious fact that Duets is looking to find a new music sensation, celebrities are setting out in search of the best singing partners. Each week they’ll take the stage with their charges to perform in front of a live studio audience. By the end of the competition, one formerly unknown singer will earn recognition and a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
Crooner John Legend went on to say,”I’m so invested in them, you know I came to the show kind of right near the end of pre production and I was picking singers and by the time I picked them we were about to perform the first show and so it happened really fast”. “I fell in love with both of them as far as making sure they would be successful and making sure they would be the best that they could be. It was like really important to me that they be successful.”
Clarkson, the winner of the first “American Idol,”says this music competition will take a positive approach.
“Our advice will be constructive,” she says. “We’re not looking to tear anybody down. I’ve been there on the other side and I know how it feels.You could take everyone who has won ‘Idol’ or ‘The Voice’ and you’d find maybe three who could harmonize. It’s an art to know when to shine and when to pull back.”
What did you think of the first night, “Duets” fans?
